Topic: Meteor shower tonight.

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


Taken from Geekologie article on the upcoming meteor shower:

For those of you that like to get high and lie in the middle of a field staring up, the Leonid meteor shower is supposed to reach its peak tonight from 1AM to dawn. Great, I'll be hiding in the back of the hallway closet waiting for the apocalypse. It, uh, is 2012, right?

The best seats are in Asia, but North American observers should be treated to an above average performance of the Leonid meteor shower, weather permitting. The trick for all observers is to head outside in the wee hours of the morning - between 1 a.m. and dawn - regardless where you live.

"We're predicting 20 to 30 meteors per hour over the Americas, and as many as 200 to 300 per hour over Asia," said Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office. Other astronomers who work in the nascent field of meteor shower prediction have put out similar forecasts."

Anybody gonna go outside at 1 am and watch a meteor shower? I know I am. Should be wicked

Everybody needs a little funk.
I see wut u did ther
Awkward cough. Her heeeerrrm!


I am excited, but last time I was told there was a meteor shower, I saw nothing, so I'm afraid to stay up late with work early in the morning for possibly nothing. I might just wake up very early... that's if Mario let's me go to sleep early enough to do so, which is doubtful.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.


I probably won't be able to see it, cause it's been kinda cloudy over here in Wake Forest.
